index file of phiX to use in Bowtie
Hi All,

I wonder if someone can direct me to find a copy of the index file for phiX to be used in Bowtie. I am pretty sure someone has made it available somewhere.

Why not download the phiX genome sequence and run bowtie-build on it? It won't take a minute.

Thanks. You are absolutely right. It is much easier building your own than looking for one.

I've had matches to regions spanning the start/end sequence (i.e. to a circular phiX genome) on an Illumina run, so it might be worth tacking a few bases from the start of the sequence onto the end of your sequence.
